NTL TV service

I have two ntl cable decoders in my household both with the 'full package' ie lots of channels. i recently bought another dvd recorder/player/vcr player that does recording onto disc or vcr and all that nonsense. upon removing the rf in from my old vcr into this new one, the ntl decoder went crazy and came up with 88:88 on the screen with all possible lights on the display on. now after 1/2 a day its seems to have settled with 8 and a led light on beside the 'remote' label on the display. any ideas on how to fix this? just thought id ask anyone before contacting ntl's rubbish service lines.

Have you tied unpluging the cable box for a few minutes befor pluging back in this will allow it to reset. Or phone NTL i think the new Free phone number is 150.

yes i have unplugged several times counting to 20 and replace the plug, unfortunately the same outcome.

Must check my spelling. It should read have you tried unplugging the NTL box.
